Lack Of Historical Knowledge Leaves You Quaking

| NC, USA | Bizarre/Silly, History, Religion, Students

(In my high school US History class, we are going over who founded various colonies.)

Teacher: “Pennsylvania was founded by William Penn and his fellow Quakers. It was the primary religion there for many years.”

Classmate: “But now Quakers are extinct.”

(Assuming she’s joking, I reply.)

Me: “Somehow I missed the memo.”

(She stares at me in surprise.)

Classmate: “You’re Quaker?”

(And that marked the first time I ever had to explain my religion.)
